Francisco and Tawney | Murrieta Wedding Photography | Temecula Valley Wedding Photographer

I have known Tawney since she was 11 and boy was I lot younger :) She is incredibly special to me and I am so thankful that I could be such a big part of her most special day. There is nothing like being the photographer - it's hard to believe I get to do this - it's really the greatest job!   I am blessed!

Tawney's version of how they met: We were complete strangers but worked in the same sports center facility (I coached volleyball and he did personal training) What are the odds that a complete stranger who is HOT actually be someone that loves the Lord, wants to live for Him, and be called, gifted, and passionate about the same things as I am?! Guess this is where God humbled me and reassured me that He loves His children and gives us exactly what we need for our good and for His glory! So that is kind of where I left it… but Francisco didn’t! He would always stare at me when I would walk in and I just kept thinking in my head… I don’t think its going to work… I have way too high of standards. LOL! Oh God is so good… one night I was at coffee with two of my girlfriends and I got an email from a Francisco Martinez… I couldn’t believe it… I told my friends “It is that cute guy from the gym!!!” We met that Friday morning for breakfast at Penfold’s and we fell in love!!!

Thanks to Jessy Dodson for shooting the whole wedding with me.  Special thanks to Carri Roman who went and took Fransisco's getting ready shots as a gift to them.

Wedding was planned, decorated and run perfectly by Tracy Farrell.  She really is amazing.  She makes my job a lot easier and I HIGHLY Recommend her! She did everything on this wedding, even the flowers.  It was fun visiting her garage and seeing it all come together!!! 

Hair and Makeup by Monique Tinahui - and I know - I say it all the time - she is the BEST - that's it.  Hands down.  Her makeup lasts all day and she knows how to apply it specifically for photography.  I think Tawney's updo was just gorgeous!

Loved the whole day - their First Look pictures are amongst my favorites.  If he prays that long everytime they sit down to eat, their food will need reheating.

Fransisco has this on their website...I think you can see why SHE fell in LOVE with HIM!

A Perfect Blessing

I am speechless. I am in awe. I am so grateful. I am so inspired. I am so in love with the one who chose me. This new phase in my life is so perfect, for nothing happens out of the perfect will of God. I don't know what God has in store, but I do know that it is to glorify him, and wherever he leads and sends we will obey and follow. He has given me a fiance because he knows that I am better capable to serve him with her by my side.

 I know she has been waiting for this much longer than I, but I have too been waiting for her. I can recall praying for her before I knew her. I recall praying that God keep my future wife in the Word, in Christ, in a great church, with great mentors and leaders. I would pray that God glorify himself through her. That she would have the same passions and desires. I prayed for this future wife every chance I could get. I knew how important it was to God's ultimate purpose. But, the thing is that I didn't get this dream girl of mine. I didn't get this girl I prayed for. I got something much more. I got the one God had for me (well still lord willingly, until we say I do). I got the girl that surpasses the one of my dreams and the one I prayed for.
